Grammar Webquest

Grammar Webquest

taken from:http://eastwoodlibrary.wordpress.com/pathfinders-webquests/grammar-webquest/

Welcome to the grammar webquest.  This is an opportunity for you to review your grammar rules and hopefully have a little fun!  Your goal with this webquest is to create a “cheat sheet” for yourself that contains all that you need to know about the rules of grammar.
First, begin by reviewing the eight parts of speech.  You can do that here.   On a separate sheet of paper, list the eight parts of speech.
Next, give a thorough definition of each part of speech.  Explain what it is and give an example. This site will help you with that.
When you have finished the above assignments, look deeper into the definitions to find subcategories.  Click the term to find the definition.   The subcategories you are responsible for are:
  • coordinating conjunction (Please read the beginning part about coordinating conjuctions, and then scroll down to read about beginning a sentence with a conjunction.   On your paper answer the following question:  When is it okay to begin a sentence with a coordinating conjunction?)
You will need to include all these on your cheat sheet!

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the Parts of Speech Webquest ! This is an opportunity for you to review what you have learned and hopefully have a little fun!

Words are everywhere. We use them everyday and it is important that we know how to use them correctly. The parts of speech are essential building blocks of the English language. Each part has its own function and importance in the English grammar.
  
 
TASK:

Your goal with this webquest is to create a "cheat sheet" for yourself that contains the main aspects about the eight parts of speech in English (Noun, Verb, Adjective, Adverb, Pronoun, Preposition, Conjunction and Interjection). This webquest also allows you to strengthen your technology skills, exercise your creativity, practice your research skills, appreciate the complexity of the English language, experience the fun of language, and visit resource sites to discriminate between different parts of speech.


THE PROCESS

1. Using Microsoft Word Program or any other word processor, elaborate a table like the one presented below:


Part of Speech
Function
Example words
Example sentence

NOUNS





PRONOUNS





VERBS





ADJECTIVES





ADVERBS





PREPOSITIONS





INTERJECTIONS





CONJUNCTIONS






2. Then, using the sites shown below (you may not need them all, feel free to jump around the list), complete your table with the requested information. 

3. Finally, send your document to the teacher´s e-mail (jeniferfeagins@gmail.com)

Our Classroom

In our classroom you will find community, consistency, cooperation, tradition and students who are self directed.
We have three basic rules:

1. Respect Yourself
2. Respect Others
3. Respect Your School

We will meet as a class and decide what these rules mean for us and then we will create our own sub-group of rules under each of the three previously stated rules.

Behavioral expectations for the children are clearly defined and the consequences are also explained to each child. In our classroom we operate on a 100 point system each day. At the end of each day, you will receive a behavior report from our classroom notifying you of how many points your child earned for the day. Please sign the report, comment if necessary and return it with your child the following day.
